One of Warren county's most
practical and successful farmers has
agreed to furnish us with matter
regularly for an agricultural depart
ment in tho Standard. He believes
that the most urgent need of the
farmers of this section is land Im
provement, and will fill the depart
ment principally with practical arti
cles on this subject.
Wheat is all killed down to the
ground, and there is much specula
tion as to what will be the outcome.
A majority of our best farmers seem
to concur in the opinion that it will
spring out fresh again from the roots,
and that there is ample time yet for
it to make a good crop. Oats sown
before the cold spell are killed out
entirely, and will have tobere-so"wn,
or the land put in corn or other crops.
A petition is to be made to Con

strong hope that the appropriation
will be secured. . , .

On Thursday night Messrs Fin
ney & Paschal concluded a lease o
the Cumberland Female College for
one year, with the privilege of five
years. In building, equipment and
healthful location this school jiosseas
es advantages surpassed by no other
in the South, and equaled by few.
This long term lease will give the
principals every advantago for build
ing up a large and prosperous school,
and we earnestly hope to see it done..
We "believe all of the stockholders
would be satisfied with a small divi
dend on their stock If the school
were filled to Its utmost capacity of
125 boarding pupils.
The publishers of "Plunder," the
Illustrated humorous weekly, In order
to introduce their publication in
every family, will give every tenth
yearly subscriber sending amount of
subscription ($2,00), direct to the
New York office, a present of $10
in cash. Ten subscriptions can be
sent in one envelope if desired, and
the person sending same will receive
$10. A sample copy will be sent free
of charge by the publishers, Gibb
Bros. & Moran, 57 Rose St., New
York, to every one
who will send for
name of this paper.
We understand that the recent
rains have washed out the ford at the
mouth of Hickory Creek worse than
ever before, rendering it quite dan
gerous, even at an ordinary stage of
water. An effort will probably be
made at the April term of the County
Court for an appropriation to at least
assist in building a bridge at that
point. A good many citizens have
signified their willingness to sub
scribe liberally to the work, provided
the County Court will render some
assistance. The county should do
the work without any assistance from
private citizens, but if they will not
do this, we hope they will at least
undertake the work in connection
with the citizens.
